“Weather” we like it or not (pun intended), autumn is quickly approaching. Crunchy leaves, brisk temps, pumpkins, cozy fashions, and all things fall are here to stay. You might be ready, but is your closet? Here’s a quick checklist of Fall 2014 wardrobe essentials.
1) Leopard Print
Shoes, jackets, pants, scarves–anything adorning this vivacious print will be a big hit this season. If an oversized leopard sweater seems too overwhelming, try incorporating the pattern in a smaller way, like through shoes or a crossover bag.
2) Plaid Shirts
Luckily, plaid doesn’t usually come in anything that’s not luxuriously comfortable. As a staple fall trend, pile on the flannels, coats, and scarves! Bonus: this pattern can work with a variety of fits, from slim and tailored to boyfriend chic.
3) Knit Sweaters
At last…the any-size, any-shape, any-color trend that offers so much flexibility–you might even score some great pieces on the men’s rack! For dressier occasions, err on the more-fitted side, and pair with polished pants or skirt.
4) Emerald Green
This statement color offers a variety of hues, allowing wearer’s to be as bright or as neutral as they’d like. Like the leopard print trend, this color can be used for larger garments–like pants or a dress–or peek through via heels, bag, or jewelry.
5) Wrap Coats
What’s more warm and comforting than getting wrapped up in a robe or towel to eliminate that post-shower chill? This cool trend for 2014, the wrap coat, has the same effect. The adjustable waist tie offers a custom fit, and makes an otherwise dressy coat a bit more casual.
6) Matching Separates
Matching tops and bottoms is a trend that started this summer is carrying over to the colder months. If one uniform pattern feels too overwhelming, try adding a sweater or jean jacket over the top to offer a little more variety.
